Tahitian vanilla (Vanilla tahitensis) comes from Vanilla planifolia stock crossed with Vanilla odorata. It is classified as a separate species, as it is notably different from planifolia in both appearance and flavor.

Tahitian vanilla has a fruity, floral aroma with notes of licorice, cherry, prunes and redolent of fresh fruit as you would find in Viognier or Reisling wine.

Tahitian beans are perfect to use in any cream desserts such as Creme Brulee, vanilla pastry cream, or custards. They are ideal in any fruit desserts, baked or fresh. Tahitians use them in seafood dishes — for instance, Mahi Mahi in a vanilla cream sauce, or Seafood in a Coconut Milk and Rum Sauce. The unique flavor of Tahitian vanilla can make for a stunning presentation in vanilla sugar cookies and delicate vanilla cakes.

There are approximately 145-180 beans per pound. Average length of beans is 14 – 15cm (~5.5 – 6″)

    I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
